Mitsubishi Motors is gearing up to enter the luxury sedan category with Lancer Evolution X also called as Evo 10.
The car will be launched in early 2009. The company plans to bring Evo 10 to India through the completely built route (import).
Internationally, the car costs Rs. 12 lakh- Rs. 13 lakh for different variants, but after adding the import duties, the cost will be Rs. 21.70-Rs. 23.5 lakh.
The Evo 10 is fired by a 2-litre engine that belts out 295 bhp power, which is more powerful than the 3-litre engines. The car, however, proves to be more powerful than all of its competitors.
The car is based on a completely new platform such as engine, exterior and interior design and is surprisingly light in weight, thanks to the aluminium engine block under the hood. In addition, to further push the driving experience, the company has given the car a four-wheel drive (4WD) option.
The car will peg against Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Skoda Superb, Volkswagen Passat, Nissan Teana and Audi A4.
